Gathering to teach eachother
Since the beginning of this initiative, we have sought not just to inspire people emotionally to commit to change, but also to provide tools and knowledge on how to live sustainably. We began to organize camps where volunteers could share their initiatives and methods for living sustainably and raising public awareness of the need for sustainability. Hosted by CIDSE members, we have held camps in Belgium, Spain and Portugal. Volunteers have enjoyed days filled with workshops, presentations, spiritual communion with nature, visits to ecological and social startups, and gardening. The collective CIDSE initiative Change for the Planet – Care for the People now has a network of hundreds of volunteers who have participated in our camps.
